British actor Russell Brand, who was touring Japan with his singer wife Katy Perry, was deported from the country on Sunday, apparently due to a past drug offense. Perry wrote on Twitter: "So...my husband just got deported from Japan. I am so. sad. I brought him all this way to show him my favourite place #tokyodreamscrushed. It was for priors from over 10 years ago!"
However, Perry added that she would not be canceling any of her concerts in Japan scheduled for Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. ”...But of course show must go on no matter the daily aftershocks or husband kidnappings,” she tweeted.
Brand also posted a series of messages on Twitter. In one, he wrote: “Planning escape from Japanese custody. It’s bloody hard to dig a tunnel with a chopstick.” Of his short time in detention, he tweeted: "Stockholm syndrome kicking in. Just asked my guard out for (vegetarian) sushi. He giggled.”
Brand, 35, who married Perry, 26, last October, has had various run-ins with the law for drug use and assault.© Compiled from news reports
